Source: Tastee Diner agrees to sell, will be acquired for Marriott HQ site in Bethesda

A source tells me the owner of Tastee Diner has agreed to sell the venerable restaurant's property, to make way for a larger Marriott headquarters and hotel to be built on that block in downtown Bethesda. After several months of negotiations with the Marriott site property owner, Tastee Diner has reportedly agreed to sell for $7 million. That is $2 million more than the offer they received in February.

Whether the diner would move to a new location, remains to be determined. If the deal goes through, Montgomery County officials should insist that a Hot Shoppes restaurant be included in the future hotel to balance out the nostalgia factor.

The Marriott headquarters project is a partnership between the hotel giant, property owner Bernstein Companies and Boston Properties. It is expected to deliver in 2022. Tastee Diner is located at 7731 Woodmont Avenue, a corner of the same block as the Marriott site, which is addressed as 7750 Wisconsin Avenue.

How so?

SS Penguin said...

Logistically speaking, can the diner be moved?
Seems like it would be easier to recreate elsewhere.

Wrol said...

What about Woodmont Grill? It'll make for a really odd cutout if that lot isn't part of the assemblage!

Regarding requiring a Hot Shoppes, if we look at the Stonehall comparison, requiring a restaurant was allowed and then taken out after the fact.

Move it to the top of the parking garage across the street.

Roald said...

Big, big news. Right to the heart of Bethesda.

Spencer Stewart said...

Moving it should be feasible. The Bethesda location has already been moved twice, once when delivered to its original location of 6604 Wisconsin Ave in 1939 from the O'Mahony Dining Car Company factory in Elizabeth, NJ, then sometime in the '50s or '60s when it was moved to its current location.

The Tastee chain should be no stranger to moving diners- they moved the original 1935 Silver Spring location to Rockville when the 1946 model was delivered, then moved that 1946 O'Mahony Diner from its original site to the current one in 2000 when the lot was sold to build the Discovery Channel building.

The reporters at the other website are scrambling because they got scooped on easily the biggest story of the week, and probably month.

The question is, even if they can move it, does any Bethesda property owner want it?

It could end up like that trash barge that kept going up and down the east coast, but no one wanted it to dock in their state.

Any chance they could move it to that empty plaza at the Bethesda Metro Center?

Tastee Bethesda will not be moved. Gene is getting older now and already has two other successful Tastee locations plus a fresh batch of money in his pocket that could be 5 million. He doesn't need the headache of moving and restarting Bethesda. As to Houston's, if Marriott wants and needs that, they'll get that too. This is once in a long time for them. Marriott will be there potentially forever. One shot deal.

11:29: If the deal goes through, they would move the diner and build in its place. Where the diner would go I guess would be up to the owner, unless he conveys the diner along with the property. It has been moved before.

The only precedent for a Hot Shoppes is that they have one in the new Marriott Marquis downtown, so why not in their corporate flagship hotel in Bethesda? It would make perfect sense.

It would be funny if they opened a Hot Shoppes, and their only customers were a couple of 80- and 90-somethings who spent most of their visits complaining about the high prices.

"Bethesda blogger Robert Dyer reported Monday that Marriott would acquire Tastee Diner and its corner lot for $7 million, citing an unnamed source.

“I did meet with Marriott on Friday, and the guy told me, ‘We don’t really need your spot, but we’d like to have that corner because it’s just a nice corner,” owner Gene Wilkes told WTOP. “After about 10 or 15 minutes and not getting any numbers on the table, I said, ‘Guys I’ve got a busy day. If you’re really serious come up with a reasonable price and give me a call,'” Wilkes said.

While Wilkes says $7 million has never been offered to him, he says a price like that is “getting close” to what he’d want." WTOP 4/24/14

1) The only one who said that the offer that was "millions", is Robert Dyer, who thinks that 14% of all Montgomery County voters are illegal aliens.

2) In any negotiation, it is best to conceal one's interest until an offer "that cannot be refused" is made.

1:28: I'm standing by my report. Neither Tastee Diner nor Marriott is going to announce anything publicly at this time. A sale of this type won't close for at least another couple of years. Any deal would likely be contingent upon Bernstein acquiring Woodmont Grill, and Marriott's site plan approval.

The WTOP story confirms details of what my sources told me - there was indeed a meeting late last week, and the owner acknowledged this is the price he wanted.

But, unless you have sources as I did in this case, you're not going to get a confirmation of a sale in April 2017. Understandably, if you don't have sources you'll want to naively cling to any denial that appears to disprove my scoop.

Surprised the troll and competitors would want to take this tack so soon after they fell on their faces with their reports that Quincy's wasn't closing.

They fell hook, line and sinker for the fantastical "waiting a month for the HVAC repairman" story.

A lot of folks commenting here don't understand how real estate deals go down. Dyer has worked the development beat for awhile now and gets it.

6:44 - You are exactly right. I said from the beginning that if Marriott wants this and Houston's properties or any other they're gonna get them period. This is a once in a lifetime deal and I also predict it is gonna go down. I'm not sure Tastee is worth 7 million. But Marriott can and will overpay and diner owner is anything but dumb. He has a big number in his head and knows they can hit it. He said at 7, they're getting closer. He isn't young anymore, has a shit ton of money already and still two other successful diner locations. This will happen. And yes, Dyer is likely correct here.

@9:22 PM - Get a life. Let's wait until the amount is publicly revealed. If Dyer ends up being incorrect then he should issue an apology for a bad source. However, just because someone says a journalist/media outlet is incorrect in their portrayal of them doesn't necessarily mean it isn't correct. We need to wait until all the facts come out. Under your logic, a convicted murder could claim a new media's portrayal of their convicted crime as "untrue" but the facts show a judge/jury has convicted them beyond a reasonable doubt.

It isn't "someone" you utter dolt - it's the owner of the property in question who was literally in the meeting. Dyer posting uncited hearsay (or simply fabricating what he wants to type and attributing it to an imaginary source) without offering a correction noting that the primary party involved has - literally - called this report "just more fake news" is absurd. It makes Dyer look terrible that he isn't handling this appropriately.

What never ceases to amaze me about Dyer's journalism "skills" is that he will not visit or pick-up the phone and ask someone what is going on. If he had asked the owner of Tastee Diner what were his plans, he would have avoided being accused of "fake news" by the owner. You see this failure to investigate frequently on this site. For example, why puzzle out loud what the Honda dealer' plans are for their newly constructed wall and garage -- ask them for god's sake.

Creeping around late at night reading window signs is not journalism.

Robert Dyer said...

6:07: You must be pretty gullible to fall for whatever a press release says. I guess you're still waiting for the "deli" to open in the Bethesda Barbeque Co. space, as Bethesda Magazine falsely reported based on the what the owner told them, even as the toilets were being carried out of the restaurant.

Good luck - I've actually been inside there. It's stripped, and available for lease to future tenants. There's no deli, and there never was going to be.

I would strongly dispute the idea that Marriott doesn't want the diner site. They have been pursuing it for months, as recently as Friday. Two parties saying, "I don't need this property," and "I don't need to sell," is just standard, smart negotiating position in a real estate deal. If Marriott said they desperately wanted it, the asking price would just go up further. And to not sell to Marriott, the owner would be making a huge financial sacrifice for..what, exactly? Who would leave $5-7 million on the table just to say, "I took one for the community. I kept the diner open." Marriott can't show their cards yet, because this whole corner depends on getting the Woodmont Grill. Without that, the diner site isn't worth $7 million to them.

That's what all the public posturing is about right now.
